  • A band that loved to lace some delicious pop melodies with incredibly intricate playing, this debut album from the Electric Light Orchestra is expanded to include two additional songs on this version.
  • CD contains 2 bonus tracks.
  • Personnel: Roy Wood (vocals, guitar, acoustic guitar, slide guitar, cello, recorder, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, saxophone, percussion); Wilfred Gibson (violin); Hugh McDowell, Andrew Craig, Mike Edwards (cello); William T. Hunt (French horn, natural horn); Richard Tandy (piano, electric bass).
  • Audio Mixer: Trevor Smith .
  • Liner Note Author: Roy Wood.
  • Recording information: Philips Studios, London, England (07/1970-06/1971).
  • Photographer: Alan Johnson.
  • Here's one of the few rock urban legends that appears to be true: This album, eponymously titled in the rest of the world, was called NO ANSWER in the US because when a secretary at United Artists called the band's office to find out the title, no one was there, and a handwritten note to that effect was mistaken for the record's name.
  • This is less the first ELO album than the last Move album. Four of the nine tracks are by Move leader Roy Wood, and even the five Jeff Lynne tracks sound closer to the Move's classically orchestrated hard-rock masterpiece MESSAGE FROM THE COUNTRY than to the shiny pure-pop ELO albums to come. Wood's tracks, like the acoustic instrumental "First Movement" and the faux-medieval "Battle of Marston Moor," foreshadow his more experimental solo work, while Lynne's brilliant "10538 Overture" is the first of his classic string of pop songs.
